I like this scene, but I have to be honest and say I have some reservations. To me, as a novice, the foreground is in focus, but it blurs further in, and because of this, loses some of it's interest. What lens did you use, because there appears to be some curvature to the horizon. Nice colours; and interest in the foreground.

Interesting shot Steven, as you have chosen a portrait format for it. You have captured movement in sea and sky and good detail in the driftwood foreground. However I feel that maybe the shot would feel more balanced if the foreground were cropped slightly. My eyes are drawn to the green coloured rocks in the middle of the shot. It would be interesting to see this in a landscape format too. If you took such a shot, maybe you could post it as a workshop.
